Welcome Back!

Dear GHS Families:

Welcome to the 19-20 school year! It is my pleasure to welcome all of you to the new school year!

This year our Seniors will be the 103rd Graduating Class of Gilbert High School! We have been busy getting the campus ready for our students and we have completed hiring our new staff for the new year. As our students enjoy their last few weeks of their summer vacation, here are a few reminders to help ensure a smooth start to our academic year:

Please check the email that went home on Thursday, July 11, 2019, for information on how to access your student's schedule and make any changes.

Our Freshmen Orientation will be held in the GHS Gymnasium on Friday, July 26, 2019, from 9:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.

Note that the first day of school is Thursday, August 1, 2019.

Our Annual Back to School Night will be held on Tuesday, August 6, 2019 from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. We will have a modified bell schedule for the evening so that you can follow your student's schedule. The Open House Night will conclude at 7:30 p.m.

Last year's Senior Class of 2019 left a lasting mark here at GHS in many positive ways. I am looking forward to a new school year and to serving the students and families here at GHS.

As always, I expect our students to be positive reflections of our community and our high expectations. Their academic success and their behavior will continue to shed a positive light on our campus community. Please help set your student on a path to success by helping emphasize being organized, staying on top of their schoolwork, and to embrace the challenges that the school year will bring.

On behalf of the faculty and staff here at Gilbert High School, we welcome you again to this new school year and we wish you and your student all the best!

Policy Change for Dropped Off Items

The front desk can no longer accept money or other valuable items such as cell phones or laptops to hold for your student. Medical devices will be accepted in the health office.

Thank you for your understanding.

Drop Off/Pick Up Information

Parents, please remember to use the parent drop-off loop in the morning and after school. Drop off or pick up is not permitted in the faculty lot on the west side of campus as this is used by students who walk and for bus transportation purposes. For everyone’s safety, please use the loop between campus and Elliot Road just north of the building.
